In order to fight your enemy you must know your enemy! You could just
choose to avoid all of the hostile mobs in Minecraft, but you can get things from that that are either hard or impossible to get elsewhere. So, before you venture out at night or into the dark depths of the caves, read up on your enemy and be ready to fight!

Step 1: Weapons and Armor

If you are going to fight monsters, you need to be properly prepared.

Crafting Weapons

  • 1 Stick + 2 (Wood Planks | Gold Ingots | Cobblestone| Iron Ingots | Diamond) = 1 Sword
  • 3 Sticks + 3 Pieces of String = 1 Bow
  • 1 Stick + 1 Feather + 1 Piece of Flint = 4 Arrows


  • 5 Ores (in an upside down "U") = Helmet
  • 8 Ores (in all spots but top middle) = Chestplate
  • 7 Ores (in large upside down "U") = Leggings
  • 4 Ores (in two little columns) = Boots
<p>Hi, inspired by this article and wishes of my son I created a mod where the player can learn fighting monsters. Think of this mod (<a href="https://sites.google.com/site/mccombattraining/" rel="nofollow">MC Combat Training</a>) as a player's Guardian angel. The training will not be interrupted by dead, because in the mod there is life guard. But not only: the damage is reported to you. You can stop training if there is no many damage reports. But to become faster better warrior, the advices from this article and other tutorials are implemented as hints and displayed after a damage. :) </p>

<p>amazing tutorial for stuff like 1.7:mobs for dummies :)</p>
????those were meant to be icons
You have some of the best instructables!!!!!????? I'm going to start follow you???
thank you for this tutorial it really works even im using WORLDCRAFT <br>
oh sorry. wrong send. i will send this in other tutorial<br>
Thank you for taking time out to create all of your tutorials. They are greatly appreciated. (The image is because they won't let me post without one.)
<p>Thanks for taking the time to check it out :) It was a lot of fun playing and making these tutorials :)</p>
<p>Can jump 2 or 3 blocks making them able to jump over fences which are 1.5 blocks tall</p><p>Not True! They can climb up blocks!</p>
<p>If you set the block where a Enderman stands on fire, the Enderman will be set on fire as well, and take damage. However, since he was hurt by fire that was on the ground, he won't attack you, nor will he teleport - not too far, anyway. This way, you can easily kill an Enderman, without taking any risk at all. Thought I might share the tip. (I would give credit as to where I read this, but I don't really remember it, though)</p>
<p>(setting the block on fire with a flint &amp; steel, that is)</p>
<p>Wither Skeletons also have a rare drop of a Wither Skeleton Head, the heads are used in creating the wither boss.</p>
Killed two enderman today, And enderman cant be hit With projectiles like arrows or snowballs
<p>The trick with an Enderman is to never look in its eyes. Keep your eyes lowered, and hit it. 5 hits with a diamond sword does the trick. If you raise your eyes, it'll start teleporting, and is a pain to catch, and might double back on you at an inopportune time. </p>
<p>Thanks for the info! I thought they could be hit by snowballs but they teleport right away if they are hit by them.</p>
<p>Creepers are great in groups. You can usually get one to kill other mobs of you time it right. One hit, back up juuuuust enough, then let the creeper hiss and pop... BAM! Dead monsters. </p>
Was a nice totorial, But monster spawners r taken out faster with a pickaxe
<p>I started &quot;saving&quot; the spawners and blocking the rooms so the monsters can't get out, but I can kill them through the hole in the wall. Skeletons are hard to do that with, but it's a cheap way to get goods they can drop. </p>
<p>Thanks for the tip!</p>
Had an accident with Lava though:)
<p>Lava is such a troublemaker! </p>
Thx, U may find it hard to believe, But I found a cave in extreme hill biome, 3 emeralds, 23 gold, and 71 iron, And A ton of redstone
Np, Just started playing again yesterday
<p>to cure a villager zombie you must first use a splash potion of weakness on it, then feed it a golden apple</p>
